Koda, a 7 month old Saint Bernedoodle from Michigan, is a bundle of puppy energy. He loves to play tug of war with his three (human) brothers, and practically somersaults with joy when he spots another dog nearby. Koda is very popular with his neighbors, but is not popular with all of their dogs (especially the older ones, who prefer a little peace and quiet).

I know I want to play with those deer, but that dang DogWatch Hidden Fence is keeping me in my yard...Posted by DogWatch of Montana Hidden Pet Fences on Sunday, December 17, 2017
If you’ve ever wondered, “do hidden or ‘invisible’ fences for dogs really work?”, you’ll want to check out this amazing video!

Happy Holidays from DogWatch Inc! In honor of the season of giving, we wanted to tell you about an organization that has truly made a difference in the lives of many animals and their families in 2018.
This year, DogWatch Inc. is making a donation to North Valley Animal Disaster Group (NVADG), a non-profit organization in Butte County, California that assists in sheltering and evacuation of animals during a disaster.
NVADG relies on volunteers, including veterinarians, vet techs, firefighters, animal control officers and others. These dedicated individuals have been working tirelessly since early November to rescue, rehabilitate and temporarily house animals impacted by the Camp Fire, the most devastating fire in California history.
We appreciate and value the work of this important organization.
May your holidays be filled with peace, good health and happy pets!
